Keep ARE, get rid of Wilson, and take a good look at Morgan. He has good speed and size
that could really help out.

Exactly how I feel. Many of the interceptions this year have been balls that were intended for Cedrick Wilson. I don't feel like he is much of a fighter, and I'd like to see Q in there over Wilson, but I think since he was added to roster late in the preseason, it's been tough for him to break into the lineup. Let's keep Randle El.

Here we go.

i think wilson has had the right opurtunities to excel with the steelres. alot of the balls that are intercepted intended for were him were 50% underthrown overthrown, whatever, are passing game just isnt up to par this all goes back to the o-line get a good one to protect ben, that will give are wr good balls, and less int.

I could be wrong, but I'm showing more names on my list. I think we need to include James Harrison (LB), Chidi Iwuoma (CB), & Willie Parker (RB). Parker & Harrison may be ERFA's.

You are right... I can't beleive I forgot about those two guys. Parker and Harrison are ERFA's, but Chidi is under contract through next season. Here is what I was able to find...


Exclusive-Rights Free Agents

Players with less than three years of experience fall into this category. Players in this group have no negotiating leverage, and are essentially bound to the team for a third-year veteran minimum salary, something in the range of $385,000. An ERFA has no ability to negotiate with other teams, though that doesn?t necessarily mean that all ERFAs play for a minimum salary. Just this season, Antonio Gates refused to sign his tender, instead holding out for a long-term deal (which he received). The Steelers have 2 ERFAs:

RB Willie Parker
OLB James Harrison

Restricted Free Agents

These are players with exactly three years of experience. The Steelers can tender one of three ?levels? of a contract offer to an RFA ? minimum, mid-level, or maximum. These players are free to negotiate with other teams and sign an offer sheet. If a RFA signs an offer sheet, the Steelers have two options ? either match the deal and retain the player, or allow the player to leave. In the latter case, the Steelers would be awarded compensation based upon the level of tender given. A minimum tender is worth a compensatory pick in the round the player was initially chosen, a mid-level tender garners a number one pick as compensation, and a maximum tender is worth a 1st and 3rd round selection. It should be noted that any compensatory picks would be awarded in the 2006 NFL Draft. The Steelers have 2 players up for RFA in 2006:

CB Ike Taylor
WR Sean Morey

Unrestricted Free Agents

These players are free to negotiate and sign with anyone, and the Steelers have no right to match an offer, nor do they receive any kind of automatic compensation. The Steelers have 11 players who will become UFAs at the end of the season:

QB Charlie Batch
RB Verron Haynes
WR Antwaan Randle El
WR Quincy Morgan
TE Jerame Tuman
OT Barrett Brooks
DE Kimo von Oelhoffen
DE Brett Keisel
ILB Clint Kriewaldt
CB Deshea Townsend
S Chris Hope

Talking Re: contract endings?

I'm not sold on El and or Wilson..

El has and WILL ALWAYS get stood up on the line,especially in the tough play-off's atmoshere and big games.Opposing cb's just kick his ass and push him around..Occaisionally he'll get off and maybe make a catch,but his size and getting off the line are in my mind his downfall.He is multi talented with his returns and pos. back-up roll at qb and his trickery pressence but thats it.We should'nt have to rely on trick plays to win ballgames

Wilson is just a BUST.I'll take Quincy anyday over that midget.!!Wilson may be fast.but that hasent helped him this year.

Exclamation Re: contract endings?

My 2 cents:

- WR Antwaan Randle El --- Keep as a 3rd rec. if he comes at a bagain, doubt he will
- OT Barrett Brooks -- see ya
- LB Brett Keisel -- Kiesel the Diesel, almost must sign, if not, another Vrabel that got away.
- QB Charlie Batch --obviously keep
- FS Chris Hope -- Chris has been doing fairly well keep
- LB Clint Kriewaldt -- it will be hard to keep both LBs, if ya let Kiesel go, you got to keep Kreiwaldt
- CB DeShea Townsend -- Veteran player, hard to say
- CB Ike Taylor -- keep, good upcoming CB, like his youth also
- TE Jerame Tuman-- cut, Cowher will keep though
- DE Kimo von Oelhoffen wow, keep at a cheap price, maybe 1 more year
- WR Quincy Morgan--keep as of now, he should be our 2nd receiver now
- WR Sean Morey keep at cheap price
- RB Verron Haynes-- see ya Verron
